Your upcoming movie The Psychiatrist - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?


I play detective Haim. He was a patient of Dr Rosenberg's when he was a teenager and this experience has stayed with him for the rest of his life. He is emotionally connected to the situation, maybe too much, and sees the chance to investigate the Doctor as too good an opportunity to pass by.


What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and to what extent can you identify with the investigating detective you play?


I seem to get cast as police officers quite a bit, probably due to physicality ,but this character was more interesting than most. The combination of strength and weakness was appealing at first and I saw a possibility of real depth in the situation.


How did you get involved with the project in the first place?


I met the writer Andrew Barclay [Andrew Barclay interview - click here] many years ago in college in Manchester and weíd stayed in touch. Iíd had a couple of years without looking for any acting work so it was a great way of starting again.


Corey with David Hoyle

What can you tell us about your director Richard L. Davies [Richard L. Davies interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?


Richard is great to work with, he has a great vision and we have lots of interests in common. Iíve done another short with him and we plan to do some more in the future, watch this space.


What can you tell us about the actual shoot, and the on-set atmosphere?


I had three scenes as you will see, the on-set atmosphere was great; the crew were good fun and very talented, and I canít wait to see the finished film!


Any future projects you'd like to share?


Richard L. Davies has asked me to take part in two more shorts to follow on from our first idea - The Interrogation. The link is included at the end. Itís great and I canít wait to get cracking on the follow-ups.


What got you into acting in the first place, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?


I started acting as a child and have done everything from horror to pantomime. I was lucky to grow up in a town with an excellent children's theatre club; we got to gain experience of everything from acting to lighting. We built sets, wrote and directed plays and my interest has just continued. Iíve got a lot to thank the Rhyl Little Theatre for.

I carried on acting after that and eventually went to drama school in my late twenties.


What can you tell us about your acting experiences prior to The Psychiatrist?


Iíve done lots of theatre from Shakespeare to improv comedy and enjoyed it mostly, you get to work really hard in conjunction with other creative people to achieve a goal and I just love the process.

I have grown to prefer film/TV over the years as you have something to show for all your work at the end and this will be my focus for the future.


As far as I know, you're also a musician, right? So please talk about your music and your process of creating your tunes for a bit!


My music is a bit scattershot, my first album Strange Fruit was a mix of songwriting and surrealism. I have created soundtracks for various theatre shows over the years and I feel the atmospherics needed for this work have influenced everything else.

I am a drummer first and foremost, but having learned my way around the studio, I am comfortable with most genres. I produce music for other people and also do some youth work with younger musicians just starting out.


Musicians, actors, whatever else who inspire you?


My top 5 people from the history of the human are

1) John Winston Lennon

2) JG Ballard

3) Peter Sellers

4) Terry Gilliam

5) David Lynch

Obviously by my last answers you can understand I would have to include pretty much everything made by Terry Gilliam and David Lynch. The original Star Wars-trilogy, The Shining, Hammer-horror and 70ís sci-fi.


... and of course, films you really deplore?


Titanic without question and the Star Wars-prequels, A Serbian Film and any of the Twilight-films. I have chosen these for very different reasons but I wholeheartedly regret wasting my valuable time watching all three ;-)
